I'd prefer the Dell 7000 with similar specs for £50 less.

That processor is embarrassing at this price.

Do most people need 8 threads CPUs for tasks that cannot be GPU accelerated these days? It's a Broadwell so it has more of a chance in 15" platform to stay at Turbo most of the time. It may not be faster per clock but can scale higher within the same power.

I would take issue with the AMD M260 - you're going to run out of GPU power before CPU power. Even Kaveri mobile has more cores than it and is the same GCN arch. Maybe one of the new Keplers would suit better?

awful config for asking price

This is a 2 core 4 thread processor.

That's what I'm saying: I don't think most people need 8 threads CPUs so this one is fine. I should have been clearer

still it doesn't justify the price tag does it? heat on this deal reflect that.

What would you recommend then "at that price". Please tell

A fangbook from cyberpower pc will come with an I7 4710, or PC Specialist Cosmos II.

Both are twice as powerful
